The famous La Famille French pastry store from Yunlin county's Douliu City has impressed many taste buds over time. Now there is one in Taichung. The white building displays delicate French pastries in a chic, neat and open space. Packed with all types of fillings, these crispy pastries remind customers of the simple beauty of French countryside with every sweet, rich-tasting bite. To experience this to its fullest, it is recommended that these treats be consumed right after purchase. If you need to take them home, it's best to store them in a freezer. --By Niang Chen, translated by Naomi Lai
